Gala require a surprise victory

Galatasaray need a win against PSG if they are to stand any chance of claiming a Europa League place.
Currently fourth in Group A, Galatasaray are only a point behind Club Brugge, who currently occupy the Europa League spot. Only a victory will do for Gala, who have an inferior head-to-head record than Club Brugge and therefore need to finish with more points than the Belgians.
On current form that seems extremely unlikely. Galatasaray's 1-0 win against Alanyaspor on Saturday ended a run of four games without a victory (D2 L2). Sixth in the Super Lig, their only points in the Champions League have come from two draws against Club Brugge.
PSG lead Ligue 1 by five points. Unbeaten in six (W5 D1), they beat Montpellier 3-1 over the weekend. There is likely to be some rotation from Thomas Tuchel, but with the likes of Angel Di Maria and Julian Draxler having started on the bench against Montpellier, they should be able to field plenty of top talent.

Narrow win for understrength Paris St-Germain will end Gala hopes

It's Galatasaray that should have the motivation, but you wonder how much they would really fancy a Europa League campaign when their defence of their Super Lig title is going badly.
Galatasaray's best chance is to keep it tight and hope to snatch a goal. Their only heavy defeat in the Champions League came in the 6-0 thrashing away at Real Madrid and with PSG not at full strength, this match could end in a narrow home victory. A PSG win and under 3.5 goals looks a pretty safe bet at odds of 2.40.
